This was one of the first pieces I made, I was inspired by some NASA posters that were produced as a sort of casting call for future mars missions. I loved the 70's sci fi art style they had to them and wanted to do a similar thing, I sculpted the cliff and rocks out of milliput and took some string from inside a climbing rope to create his rope, I converted him slightly to give him a more dynamic feeling. I wanted a really strong contrast between cold shadows and warm light areas which I think came through in the end but only from certain angles. I'm really pleased with how this one came out and I hope you like it
